QUEBEC – Northern Superior Resources, based in Sudbury, Ont., has discovered two new gold-bearing structures at its Croteau Est property near Chibougamau. The new find is outside the boundaries of the Croteau Bouchard shear zone (CBSZ) previously reported. [caption id="attachment_1003718341" align="alignright" width="300"] Winter drilling at Croteau Est gold project in Quebec.[/caption] Five holes east of the Croteau Fault discovered a new zone of shear-hosted mineralization and associated quartz veining containing gold values ranging upwards of 7.39 g/t gold over 1.70 metres and 3.76 g/t gold over 1.22 metres. This 13 to 23 metre wide,  gold-bearing structure has been traced for  340 metres along strike and is open to the east; Three holes drilled 1.0 km south of the inferred resource where the Croteau South shear zone and Croteau Fault intersect recovered gold-bearing bedrock chips from reverse circulation holes. The results suggest there is a 100-metre wide interval of brittle stockwork fracturing, shearing and quartz veining associated with assays of up to 3.47 g/t gold over 1.2 metres. Results have allowed the company’s geologists to gain a better understanding of structural controls and emplacement mechanisms for the high grade shoots within the CBSZ. A second phase of drilling – 8,000 to 10,000 metres – is planned. Learn more at www.NSuperior.com.
